Special Wheelhorse

This was one of my Dad's (Special Wheelhorse) tractors.  Can anyone tell me what year and model it is?

Looks to be a Tecumseh powered Suburban...

either :wh: model 551, a or 552.

Check you engine's spec #'s, against these two here.

It's a 1961 551. The transmission looks to be the 5007 with the 2-piece case. The battery location, hood and footrests are clearly 61. The other mid engine 61, the 401, had the 3-piece 5010 transmission and the hoodstand was like the 60 models with no provisions for a battery.. The engine on the 552 was at the front of the chassis. That's a dandy. :)
